I had a turn 3 win with Kiln Fiend , Tainted Strike , Artful Dodge , and Apostle's Blessing . Nice deck.

ShiltonCDXX on Green Black infect?

I run a GU infect deck that relies on Mutagenic Growth s, Increasing Savagery and Wild Defiance to pump up preferably my Blighted Agent s, but I use Artful Dodge to make my other creatures unlockable if needed. Must times I can delay until I an able to just pump 1 guy to at least 10/10 and unblockable then just swing for the win.

Deceptively fast G/U Infect deck

I know you're going for card draw, but there are some spells with Rebound and Flashback that you might want instead. I think you are needlessly hindering yourself by insisting on draw

  • Distortion Strike , for example, gives you damage on the creature twice, you can get it through to the player, and then you can do it again next turn for free. It's not card draw, but it's similar. Same with Emerge Unscathed
  • Artful Dodge has flashback, which is like draw ...
  • Guided Strike is also nice
  • Triton Tactics gives you two heroic triggers for 1 card. It could also save your ass, and it could be quite an unpleasant surprise, especially if you leave yourself open. Similarly with Ajani's Presence , which also makes use of your commander.
  • Conviction doesn't give you any draw at all, but it is hilariously spammable if you can get the mana to support it (when i had it in my heroic deck, people got legitimately pissed at it). With Triton Cavalry and a few more enchants (such as Spirit Loop ), you could really go crazy
  • Hidden Strings isn't draw, but it's another repeatable spell for free that is like giving your creatures vigilance, or extra mana. It also can trigger two heroics each time it's cast
  • Chasm Skulker will feed off the draw you're getting. If it dies, you could come out far ahead with Phalanx Leader
  • Gods Willing - Scry is almost as good as draw, and again it gives protection
  • Tidings is awesome draw, my opponents always repeat it to make sure they heard correctly
  • Gridlock combined with the Battlefield Thaumaturge can trigger every Heroic you attack with and guarantee all your creatures get through
  • Wojek Siren , Bathe in Light , etc trigger a heroic and gives all your creatures a buff
  • Gallantry is nice
  • Oblation you can remove any targettable permanent on the field. Also, since Heroics resolve before the triggering spell, you can cast it on your own creature if you're desperate
  • Strionic Resonator can't trigger a heroic, but it can double the effects
  • None of Infiltration Lens , Mask of Memory , Rogue’s Gloves , Coastal Piracy , Bident of Thassa , or Military Intelligence can trigger heroics, but they can be pretty sick card draw
  • Cauldron of Souls - Unkillable creatures, anyone?
  • True Conviction has nothing directly applicable, but when it enters, it is a huge threat
  • Wing Shards is another of those "with all these cheap spells, you could get a LOT of copies ..."

anyway i'm bored. goodnight

Replace Snapcaster Mage with Kiln Fiend and add Artful Dodge and Assault Strobe for that turn 3 win.

I have had this deck for a long time, just added it onto the site:

Blighted agents are extremely useful for the unblockable, and they're relatively cheap. But Neffferean is right, Distortion Strike and Artful Dodge are all you need really, even if you didn't use blighted agents. Using those with your Glistener Elf s would wreck kids.

The best way to utilize infect is to keep the cost low - instead of titanic growth, you should use Groundswell , because you should be playing a land every turn anyways and the cost is half of Titanic Growth . Might of Old Krosa is also a good choice if you are willing to spend a little more money. If you're worried about destroy effects or want to keep your creatures safe from spells early on, use some Vines of Vastwood .
